It is now safe to say that “Ride to Help the Poor Fight Cold” has become a permanent fixture in the calendar of xKmph.com every year and it gives me immense happiness and satisfaction when I say the same. Right from day one, the idea of the ride has never been to boast of the kilometres ridden or the places conquered; it has always been to improve from the previous year. The main aim has always been to donate more than what we donated before.
Continuing the tradition forward, we not only collected and donated more clothes as compared to last year in Kolkata, but we took the initiative a step forward by successfully executing it in two different cities, i.e. Kolkata and Siliguri.

A common poster was created for the ride in both the cities and like every year, various online as well as offline social platforms were used to promote the ride. It was heart-warming to see that we got support and donations from both bikers and non bikers alike which made the entire effort worthwhile. Our biker buddies from neighbouring towns like Tamluk, Burdwan, Gangtok, etc also came forwards to participate in large numbers.

Here are the details of the ride respective of the two cities –

The Kolkata chapter –

The Kolkata chapter chose Christmas day for the donation of the old winter clothes. However, background work and collection of the donation started almost a month prior to that. Most of the core members of the team dedicated their spare time to promote and collect as many clothes as possible for the ride. Arvind Pal Singh was generous enough to let us use his house on the night before the ride to sort and pack all the clothes. The same route along the central avenue starting from Sovabazar to Kalighat was chosen for the donation. A few old faces and many new ones joined in to collect, sort, pack and then donate the clothes. For the first time, we also had female participation in the ride. One car and two taxis were used to carry the donated clothes. In all, there were around 30 bikers and bikernis who participated in the event. The pictures will tell the story in a better way -  



The Siliguri chapter –

The Siliguri chapter chose the morning of the New Year as the day for the donation of the old winter clothes. After a bit of persuasion the team swung into action to make the ride a reality approximately three weeks before the ride. The entire offline as well as online team worked together to make their first ride as successful as possible. Souvik “Bigdaddy” Sengupta volunteered to let us use his house for the entire collection and the subsequent packing of the clothes. The team did a scout ride early in the morning a few days before the actual ride to determine the places where the donation should be done and decided to donate the clothes at various places like The New Jalpaiguri railway station, NBSTC bus terminus, Hill Cart road, Sevoke road, etc. The team managed to collect over a thousand clothes and that too in their very first attempt! A small minidor van was hired to assist in the donation of the clothes. In all, a total of around 20 bikers from all age groups participated in the ride. Here are the pics from the Siliguri chapter –


Even though I am the only person associated with the ride since its inception, at the outset of winter every year, I start to gear up for this ride with childlike excitement. The only reason for that is the satisfaction which I get after doing this ride is something which cannot be compared to any ride that I have done. On behalf of the entire xKmph.com community I would like to give a big warm hug and a humble thank you to each and every person who has taken part in this small initiative of ours to make this world a slightly better place. We hope to have you and many more people with us next year.  Smiley

xKmph ROCKS...........

Proud of being in xKmph..............

3 yrs in the running....and growing in numbers and volumes...... should be proud of.

@Ramneek ....your brain child is growing stronger and stronger with each passing year.

Thanks to ALL the BIKERS who participated in the Cause ride in KOLKATA and SILIGURI.

We didn't make any significant difference in the lives of those hapless and mis-fortunate  people.....
But WE brought a BIG SMILE on their face..... atleast for one night.

Even though our reasons to do the rides for a cause are never to win awards or accolades but to always to do something good for the society. It does feels great to be appreciated. Gives us immense motivation to keep on doing many more such rides in future. A big hug to each and every person who directly or indirectly took part in any of our cause rides...
